NOFX May Still Release New Music Despite Withdrawing From Tour

NOFX may continue to record and release new music even after they stop touring next year, according to guitarist Eric Melvin.

Melvin explained more about the band’s decision to tour in a chat with Avenged Sevenfold’s Johnny Christ on his Drinks With Johnny podcast. He revealed that the decision was mainly due to host and bassist Mike ‘Fat Mike’ Burkett and the stress and anxiety he experiences on tour.

“It’s sad, but it’s true. It’s actually Mike. I think I have a clue, but I’m not quite sure why exactly. Maybe he’s stressed, anxious about it. And maybe not he’s sure he’s working for him more Melvin said.

“He has been talking about it for a few years. We have tried to make adjustments and, of course, the pandemic has messed everything up. We have tried to see adjustments if it works better for him, and it seems was … not.

“So he has to go out there and stop. I think we are showing our strengths more than ever live and he is not feeling it. He has to do what he has to do. We are brothers and we have to accept .to care for each other, for each other, despite the reasons that pull us in different directions.

“We have to support him on that. Let’s make the biggest bang we can to go out there. Let’s have a big party, we’ll celebrate 40 years of touring, 40 years of recording.”

However, this does not necessarily mean the end of NOFX: “He still wants to record and release records as NOFX. So we’ll see how it works because they go hand in hand, but they don’t have to.”

NOFX released their new album “Double Album” earlier this month. Fat Mike has also announced that he has formed a new band, Codefendants, which he has described as “a fluid type of music, a cross between hip hop, new wave, flamenco and the Beatles”.
